Rancho Cucamonga (Calif.) defensive lineman Averell Spicer’s next official visit wasn’t supposed to be until November 19 to Florida State. The talented lineman has made a change in his schedule however and will be taking visit No. 2 in two weeks.
“I moved up my Oklahoma visit from December to (Nov. 12),” Spicer said. “They’re playing Nebraska that weekend and I just think they wanted me to come in on a game weekend so I could see what the atmosphere would be like and that was fine with me. That should be a great time because I know what a big rivalry those two schools have with each other.”
Spicer will still visit the Noles on the 19th and USC (Jan. 14). The lineman visited Nebraska in early September and will also take a January visit to Oregon State but hasn’t locked in the date yet. Here’s how the All-American lineman broke down his final five schools.
USC- “They have the best team in the country right now. They have had the best defensive line in the country the last two years and have the best DL coach (Ed Orgeron) in the country.”
Florida State- “I grew up an FSU fan, they were my childhood favorite. I used to live in Orlando until I moved out here in high school so I know the area and I’m comfortable there.”
Nebraska- “I love the coaches and they’re fan support is incredible. They have a great tradition there and I like the city itself, I was very comfortable there on my visit.”
Oklahoma- “They have a great defense every year and Coach Stoops is one of the best defensive coaches in the country. I love their style of play and how physical and tough they are.”
Oregon State- “They were the first school to offer me and I’ve camped there a couple of times and like the campus a lot. Their coaches show me a lot of love and I know a lot of the players there already.”
“I’ll be ready to make my college choice after my last visit sometime in mid to late January. USC and Florida State are still my top two right now but I’m going in to all the visits with an open mind.”
